As a fun way to announce the official beer of Factory Five Racing, we are holding a "Name That Caption" contest. The crew here at Factory Five will pick the funniest caption and the winner will receive a free case of Ipswich Ale. We don't have any rules other than you gotta be 21 (I guess) and I don't think we can ship beer so you gotta pick it up here at FFR. If the winner doesn't pick-up the beer within 10 days, we will drink it all.

Yes, that's me in the avatar with Dave Smith in front of my roadster at the '06 F5R Open House!
On a Side note. I talked to my old Boss the other day he mentioned the guy across the street from him in Sharon was building a FFR and he was the President or something of Ipswich Ale.....Is that the connection?

I was going to put it in the trunk, and then I remembered I don't have a frigging trunk.
I decided to demonstrate the need for a trunk to Dave. Even if it only had enough space for a transaxle, at least it would be enough to bring my Mendeola back home home and swap it out with the G50.
I want AWD, so I decided I should start with a new transaxle.
here Dave, lets play catch.
I'm gonna win April Fool's day this year for sure. He'll try to put it in gear and realize he doesn't have any gears.
